    Known as Franklin Manor, this historic Cherokee Triangle landmark exudes a sophistication reminiscent of a bygone era, while offering luxurious modern amenities appreciated by the most discerning buyer. Transformed by the current owner into an exquisite, private and secluded retreat, no detail was overlooked in the renovation and restoration of this Second Renaissance Revival style home. Upon arrival, your attention is immediately captured by the vibrant red Spanish tile roof. Enjoy the perfectly manicured front gardens that lead to a vast terrace spanning the front of the home. Step inside the grand foyer, where the original hardwood floors with inlay detail, original floor registers, original stained-glass windows, and intricate moldings take you back to the birth of the Highlands. The wide, refurbished staircase framed by magnificent stained glass windows, leads to the second floor and is the centerpiece of the foyer. Left of the foyer is the stunning formal living room, featuring a gas fireplace, abundant windows, and a nook that perfectly fits any grand piano. Adjacent to the formal living room is the parlor that boasts gorgeous built-in cabinetry and shelving, as well as a built-in furniture piece that contains the retractable flat screen television. Right of the foyer is the sophisticated formal dining room, complete with a gas fireplace and ornate coffered ceiling. The dining room can easily accommodate large dinner parties, and the adjacent sunroom provides an additional space to host guests and enjoy a libation before or after dinner. With heated floors, a wet bar with refrigerator drawers for drink storage, and customized Carnivale of Venice hand-blown art glass from Murano inlaid within the corner columns, your guests are sure to be impressed by the sunroom. Make your way to the kitchen to find every chef's dream: a 60" Wolf range with French burner and griddle, a Miele steam oven, a top-of-the-line Miele microwave, and two Miele warming drawers. Cleanup is a breeze with the Fisher Paykel dishwasher drawers, a second dishwasher (Miele brand), and the Blanco black crushed granite sink. A Subzero refrigerator with two freezer drawers provides an abundance of food storage. A large center island with seating and stunning wood detail are added features of this exceptional kitchen. Two staircases lead to the spacious and stunning second floor living areas. Original hardwood floors grace most of the second floor, which offers three full bedrooms, each with its own ensuite bathroom. Art Deco handmade French doors provide privacy and elegance for the spacious master suite. The master sitting area, with a flat screen TV hidden by artwork, is perfect for unwinding after a long day. Just outside the French doors is a private balcony with its own hot tub, a wonderful place for stargazing and relaxing. The spa-like master bathroom features a steam shower with built-in TV, an in-shower fogless mirror, a separate toilet closet with bidet, a towel warming drawer, a vanity with built-in TV monitor, and a large walk-in master closet with custom built-ins. The middle bedroom overlooks the front gardens and connects to a luxurious bathroom with a fiber optic ceiling emulating the night sky, a Kohler "hatbox" toilet, and a magnificent Kohler lineal flow tub with rainbow color wheel. Overnight guests will be offered the royal treatment in the guest suite--a private sanctuary complete with private balcony, a sitting area, a gas fireplace, a TV hidden behind the artwork over the mantle, a steam shower, a Miele coffeemaker system, and a Subzero refrigerator with freezer drawers. The third floor has been completely updated with a mirrored exercise area, wet bar, full bath with Kohler jacuzzi tub, sauna, and an additional closet with security system for storage of valuables of all forms.

The impeccable attention to detail applied to the main house extends to the outdoors in the garage, carriage house, outdoor kitchen, pool area, and pool house.
